    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is not only scheduled to host a rally on the Eastern Shore of Maryland this evening, but is also set to speak in central Delaware later this week.


SALISBURY, Md.– Donald Trump’s campaign headquarters, located in downtown Salisbury, has been busy since news broke of the presidential candidate’s visit to the Eastern Shore of Maryland on Monday.

On Tuesday morning, several people were seen waiting outside for the office to open up.

One of those people was Phyllis Lynch of Fruitland. Lynch, her tickets to the Trump event Wednesday night already picked-up online, was patiently waiting to get some yard signs and find other people willing to carpool to Stephen Decatur High School in Berlin where the event is being held.

Lynch, like others waiting, is an avid Trump supporter.

"I like his ideas for the country”, Lynch said, “I believe that he can make America great again."

Others say they are surprised Trump would make the visit, saying his willingness to give the less-populated part of Maryland face-time shows his willingness to fight for the little guy.

Not everyone is looking forward to the visit. Scott Malone of Salisbury says he doesn’t believe Trump should be the next president.

"I think that he's rallying the people because he's just saying things that everyone's thinking but no one's willing to say and they're just outlandish." Malone said.

Inside Trump’s Salisbury office, supporter and campaign volunteer Mark McIver helps hand out yard signs. The location has been busy for a while, but Monday’s news brought things to a whole new level.

"Around 4:30 yesterday afternoon when the story broke, the social media and the phone networks just started to burn up.” McIver said, “It was crazy."

However, The location of Trump’s Wednesday night rally is raising eyebrows. Maryland State Education Association President Betty Weller released a statement Tuesday saying Trump’s rhetoric has no place in Maryland public schools.

“School should be a safe place for all students, no matter their background," Weller said. "Allowing Trump to speak in a public school normalizes and condones bullying attitudes and behavior that go against the tolerance and acceptance that educators strive to teach our students every day.”

Trump is scheduled to land at the Salisbury-Ocean City: Wicomico Regional Airport sometime late Wednesday afternoon. His event at Stephen Decatur High School is slated to begin at roughly 7 p.m.
